“The Burning Room” by Michael Connelly. This is the 19th Harry Bosch novel and they have all been fantastic. I love Harry Bosch and moving Bosch to LADP’s Open-Unsolved Unit with new partner rookie Detective Lucia Soto has given the series new life. This time Bosch catches an unusual cold case in which the victim dies after being shot nine years earlier. There’s no evidence, but there’s plenty of political complications. It’s hard to believe that anyone who loves mysteries hasn’t picked up the Bosch series, but if you haven’t yet read these run to the library and start at the beginning.
“Blue Labyrinth” by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child. Special Agent Pendergast is back in this 14th book in the series. After one of Pendergast’s enemies ends up dead on his doorstep with a piece of turquoise in the deceased stomach, Pendergast chases the killer on a journey into his family’s past. This is an unusual and complicated mystery series which went a little off track for a while, but is now back on track with the regular characters back in great form trying to help Pendergast solve a complicated mystery filled with action and suspense.
